Wait one more weekend before stashing away the patriotic garb.
Young Americans for Freedom and Campus Rec are holding their first freedom run Sunday at 2 p.m., starting at Simpson Residence’s parking lot. The less-than-one-mile race features prizes for the best patriotic costumes not the faster runner. The event encourages campus cooperation as well as health and wellness, said junior Margaret Odell, a Campus Rec staff member who organized the event.
“Campus Rec is not just an isolated organization; it’s part of campus, and in order to promote that campus-wide vision, I wanted to partner with an organization on campus that honestly is also part of campus,” Odell said. “YAF is the first thing I thought of.”
YAF President junior English Hinton said the race will end at Central Hall and have free food and other activities, including a photo booth and an “all-American-themed” obstacle course.
There will be no fee to participate in the race, and the first 110 people to sign up will receive a free T‑shirt. Odell said students can sign up in the Grewcock Student Union on Thursday and Friday.
